Getting your best friend to officiate your wedding is nice and all but for something extra special, how about enlisting the help of Queer Eye star Jonathan Van Ness? That’s right, the grooming guru and LGBTQ+ advocate is partnering with Elysian Brewing to champion marriage equality and inclusivity this pride season. (Yaas, queen!)
JVN will marry one lucky couple at the brewing company’s Seattle pub on Tuesday, June 4. (Competition details below.) The date marks the start of pride season and has a significant meaning for the LGBTQ+ community.
In a promo video for the event, Van Ness referenced the Colorado bakery that refused to make a cake for a same-sex couple in 2018.
“Last year, the Supreme Court ruled in favor of a cake shop owner who wouldn’t bake a wedding cake for a same-sex couple,” he explains. “Thankfully, there are so many businesses that do support the LGBTQ community, because it shouldn’t matter who you are, or who you love.”
